BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS FOR TEENS AND TWEENS ~ EMOJI PARTY

Everyone loves to express themselves and EMOJIs make it more fun than ever! These birthday party ideas, with Emojis as the theme, appeal to such a wide range of ages.  I know it is often difficult to find a theme for older kids (tweens and teens), and so this party by Lillian Hope Designs is a perfect way to celebrate with something everyone can agree on...who can deny the charm of these little yellow faces with heart eyes and cute smiles? I also love the fact that they translate so well into fun desserts and treats!  These Emoji Cookies are just the best!

Lillian Hope Designs got very creative with the signs and other paper products that she designed for the party! Did you notice how all of the buffet signs have a hashtag with the label?  I am sure the kids love that little detail! And, the cupcake toppers make the vanilla cupcakes pop with personality! 

Lillian Hope Designs was also so creative incorporating sprinkles in vanilla ice cream cups to add such a customized and festive touch to store-bought treats! So smart!

And, then she made Emoji Bark! I just love it!  So adorable and absolutely fun for the guests- not to mention efficient and affordable for the hostess!  I think this will be a fun activity for my kids to make this summer!

And, Emoji Juice is the cutest choice- all dressed-up in clear bottles with black and white straws and twine!  Add the fun straw flags for the finishing touch...

Lillian Hope Designs shows you how she put it all together on one dessert table in the photo below..she added a party banner and a bouquet of Emoji balloons to make it all complete!

The adorable Emoji faces make for a really funny photo booth session- I also love the addition of yellow sunglasses and heart shapes on the lenses.  Too cute!

CUTE EASTER CHICKS- BIRTHDAY PARTY IDEAS-EASTER BASKETS-EGG HUNTS

I love these adorable baby chicks!  Some are hatching and some are dressed and ready for spring!  I hand-painted each one with non-toxic paint and sealant.  They fit perfectly inside of plastic Easter eggs and they look so sweet in Easter baskets!  Here is my shop on Etsy if you would like to take some home with you! :) I also think these hatching chicks would be SO CUTE at a Farm Birthday Party and at baby showers!!  Let me know what you think!

Thank you,
